Small Bathroom Renovation & Extension in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire

This client contacted us for a Bathroom Refurbishment quotation in which he wanted to include Bathtub and a Shower within this small existing bathroom and thus we had to remodel and extend this bathroom to meet client’s requirement as you can see from the following pictures.
Entrance of the Bathroom Before Refurbishment
We can see in above picture how small this bathroom was originally. Literally take 4 steps from Entrance Door to the Radiator and Window and that's the end of it
Bath Tub Area Before Refurbishment
It wouldn't have been possible to include a Shower with the Bathtub without creating an extension.

Free Consultation With Client

In the initial meeting when we visited the client to carry out the survey of this bathroom, we managed to get as much requirement as possible from the client and we gave our suggestions and shared ideas with each other so that client’s new dream bathroom can reflect his life style and aesthetic preferences. For us, it’s really important that we give each of our clients their dream bathroom that they have always been searching for. As it can be seen from the above pictures, this bathroom was too small to install both a bathtub and a shower. Thus, Normz, the project head at that time suggested the client in his words:

Conversation between the Client & Normz

“I saw the cupboard and I suggested the client that it needs to come off and take this wall out to make an extension till where the mirror is and move the loft hatch on the landing and that way we can create a bigger and more spacious bathroom for a bathtub and a shower” and the client really liked Normz creative idea!

The mirror Normz is referring to is on the right side where you can see a reflection of one of our team member. Loft hatch can also be seen outside the bathroom.

Bathroom Remodel Begins!

We ripped all the walls back to bricks as the old plaster started to crumble in big chunks. There was no way we could repair it to install new tiles on top so we decided to rip it all back to bricks and start fresh with plasterboards and plastering to give more life to the bathroom and while we were working on this, the client and Normz spoke and decided to put a new ceiling too for better and longer life of the Bathroom overall.

During refurbishment, sink and Toilet side of the wall removed to rebuild another wall
The Toilet & Sink side of the wall fully removed to rebuild a brand new one.

During refurbishment, the ceiling was also stripped down to rebuild a new one so the whole bathroom will have long life span

Bathroom remodel by removing airing cupboard completely

The airing cupboard was removed to make the bathroom bigger and to install separate shower and bathtub.
This is the cupboard that was removed to create an extension so that it could become possible to add shower and the tub in this tiny bathroom
This is the Airing Cupboard suggested to be taken off to create an extension.The airing cupboard door can be seen two pictures down outside the bathroom to better understand what we are referring to.

Bathroom remodel on entrance door side by adding the new stud wall

We installed a new stud wall with bathroom entrance level with the landing wall to give it a nice smooth clean finish outside and create more room inside the bathroom and have easy access to the shower. So that we don’t have problems in the future, we replaced all the plumbing, heating and drainage. When we’re carrying out refurbishment on any part of the house, we always think ahead in the future so that no big issues will be caused as we want to be remembered by our clients for our brilliant efforts we put in each project.

Original Loft Removed & Relocated for Bathroom Remodel

The loft was originally located outside the Bathroom Entrance and because we extended the bathroom entrance, we relocated the loft hatch in the landing area and thus we had to create a new landing ceiling to keep it separate from the bathroom as that’s what the client asked of us and we fulfilled the request. 

Bathroom Remodel continues
